(I found that I was getting a lot of activity on the page and have decided that this topic must be a big one for many. YOU ARE NOT ALONE...and these ugly warts will soon disappeared...God Bless!)
I wanted to post this because I was misinformed about this virus. I was told that it was not contagious, but it most definitely is. The confusion must have come from the fact that most of us are immune to this virus and if we do get it, it's not a big deal-it really has no ill effects except that the warty bumps they produce are ugly, but do disappear with time. Sometimes they will leave scars.
I mention this because my son in Haiti (the one we are in process to adopt) had these bumps all over his hands and various places on his body and face. I brought several toys with me to Haiti last November that he played with, drooled over and enjoyed...I brought most of these toys home, which in turn, my 3 year old, Evan, played with...I never thought to clean them, bad mommy. About a month later a bump or two emerged on Evans his hand. It never progressed any further than that but wanted to give a heads up for anyone traveling to see there Haitian children this summer. If you bring toys, CLEAN THEM AFTER :-)
